StreamInsight Licensing

I cannot help but think that this is currently wrong.  There are two editions of StreamInsight (SI), Premium and Standard.  A link to their differences is here

Points to note

  • Developer Edition and Evaluation Edition represent Enterprise Edition in SQL Server but not SI where they represent Datacentre Edition.  Won’t this be confusing when people evaluating SI find that it is not the same animal when they move to Enterprise Edition?
  • If SI Premium is the only thing you want out of the SQL Server box then it is going to be a high cost.

The latency rates as well quoted on the site above make Premium Edition essential if you are going to be using this to do Real-Time analytics in a lot of scenarios.
